    You're confusing free 2 play with a game demo. Anyway I'm bored of talking about this, I don't care if people are wrong on the internet

    its free to play as long as you want, there is no time limit in WoW.
    there is no difference from Free WOW - level 20, Vanilla WoW - level 60, TBC lvl 70 WOTLK lvl 80 Cataclysm lvl 85
    They are all capped at certain levels, or are you telling me that vanilla wow is a demo too?

    There is considerable content from 0-20, I wouldn't call that a demo or a free trial, free trial was 10 day play time. Demos do not exist in MMO's

    I was just wondering...

    How much Level 20 content is there in WoW?

    I remember when i was playing i hit Level 30ish before my Week's trial was up. In fact i think i hit Levels 16-20 on the second or third day.

    That's not really the same as "Free-to-Play" model since the content just isn't there compared to say Champions Online where all the original content till Level 50 is free.

    Anyone quibbling about the small monthly fee for an AAA MMO needs to find another hobby, maybe golf, oh wait that would be 5 times the monthly and yearly costs...

    I was hoping for a 300$ lifetime sub, but i can handle paying a year at a time.

    Yours in paying for excellence Plasma,

    Graphical wise this game should be released half a decade ago.

    Because everyone knows that MMOs are the pinnacle of graphical technology?

    The game looks perfectly fine and the style was chosen so that it would age better than the more "realistic" looking games out there.

    Lest we not mention that WoW rakes in more cash than almost every other game and yet still looks like cack.

    That's why AoC is the ONLY MMO worth playing.

    And the reason why it's such a big hit no?

    Whilst AoC might have looked graphically amazing at the time, i wouldn't say it's aged that well. I've been browsing through some screenshots and i think i'd still prefer an Unreal 3 based game over it.

    I'm not saying SWTOR looks any better, just that since it's not meant to look realistic, it'll age much better.

    SWTOR everything just looked dull and blur and not to mention lazy and boring combat systems. Whereas AoC everything just looked beautiful if you had decent hardware and even though the game is three years old.

    I guess we'll just agree to disagree.

    I found SWTOR to be rather a nice twist of the traditional MMO, more specifically the voice acting/dialogue choices.

    The Imperial Agent was also rather fun and the cover system made him very engaging to play.

    Age of Conan on the other hand never appealed enough for me to bother contemplating it.

    I'm yet to even try any pay monthly game and am pretty sure I never will.

    I may at a push, give guild wars 2 a go...

    I'm unsure how the news that a, like it or not, greatly anticipated MMO now has a release date has deteriorated into a WoW this, that contest is odd.

    All I can say is that I'll give it a go and if it's good and there's enough PvP (as PvP planets sound pretty cool) to keep me busy I will play it.
